Augustana for racial justice 和 social change
Know justice, know peace
Justice is necessary because injustice exists. Racial discrimination; economic inequality; health care disparities; and inadequate access to quality education, healthy food 和 transportation are just some of the issues.
When we know what injustices exist, we can work to dismantle the systems that perpetuate injustice 和 create a fair, more equitable society.
Our ambition at 威尼斯棋牌游戏 is to promote the social change necessary to remediate the inequities that we see because of racial disparities.
博士。莫妮卡米。工匠, vice president for diversity, equity and inclusion, will lead campus conversations to help raise awareness of racial justice issues and empower the campus community to get involved in efforts to make positive change on campus 和 in the world.

With seed money provided by Steve 和 Jane Bahls, the fund provides a means for students at 威尼斯棋牌游戏 to initiate projects on campus or within the 四城市 community that:
• Raise awareness of racial justice issues
• Promote dialogue between differing constituencies concerning racial justice issues
• Propose methods to racial justice issues
• Encourage activism 和 social change to address racial justice issues
• Help the community examine underlying equity issues that impact racial justice
Racial justice broadly defined includes criminal justice, economic justice, environmental justice, health care justice 和 other issues of justice impacted by race.
